Moderate Salicylates, Low Glutamates, Low/Moderate/Very High Amines

For the 2 cups of cereal, start with rolled oats as your base and make up the two cups with any other allowed cereals.  We use puffed rice, millet rings, processed bran and/or Special K.


  • Fresh coconut is moderate chemical and contains both amines and salicylates.  If these can be tolerated the fresh grated coconut can be included.
  • Nestle White Melts are a milk based confectionery and are not derived from chocolate, so they are low chemical.  If amines are tolerated you can use any white, milk or dark chocolate that is tolerated.

This recipe can also be used to make muesli bars that last well in an airtight container for up to 2 months (great to have on hand at school or child care).

200g of condensed milk is half a can, the other half can be frozen to make another batch later.
